Everything was done as we spoke about it. Thanks to Saf Patel who did a great job for us and we had a fabulous time.
Zoe was very helpful and prompt with everything. Really impressed
Excellent support and advice from Amy Hibbert, our only complaint would be the changing of connection flights by British Airways
Sean was very helpful and managed our trip throughout the pandemic resulting in us traveling two years later. We will be back soon for another booking
We very pleased with the level of service we received from Nicky Degun. We had a stress free holiday yet again
I would like to express my appreciation to Joe Orton for arranging our holiday to Vegas which was a success. The return flight was delayed for 5 hours but that was BA’s fault. I will definitely book my future holidays with DialAFlight
Everything went to plan and I had a great holiday.
Jarvis, Daryn and staff always ensure a good experience. It's so nice to speak to a real person, and promptly. Thanks to you all. I can be assured of professionalism and competence whenever I travel.
Once again exceptional treatment from Wayne - always above and beyond
Wonderful service from Callum as always. Would never go anywhere else.
Kieran is the man I always use for long haul. 100% trust what you do for us - this was an important family holiday and we loved it
Always book our trips through Marshall Finnemore - he is so helpful and knowledgeable, always gets us a good deal and nothing is too much trouble.
Already passed your details on to one of my customers
The whole trip was excellent from start to finish - we will use DialAFlight again for future trips
Great communication during difficult pandemic times and staff always eager to help
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful throughout .. I was impressed when Warren left a message to wish us a good holiday. I thought that was very thoughtful. We had a problem with MGM hotel in Las Vegas as they were saying that they wouldn't hold our rooms as we were delayed arriving. The lady we contacted at DialAFlight sorted this out for us for which we were really grateful
Gavin has always been nothing less than excellent with all my dealings and bookings.
Dennis was fantastic - constantly updating me and also helping with any questions
I feel Graham really listened to our preferences and made sure our USA trip was everything and more that we could have wished for. I recommend DialAFlight to all my family and friends
Great service as usual -thank you Harry. All arrangements went as planned. Had a fabulous holiday, totally recommend your service, 1st Class!
Superb service from start to finish. Detailed booking with lots of moving parts but it ran like clockwork. Any queries I had were dealt with promptly. Would highly recommend and will use again.
Troy made sure that we were happy so we were ready in all aspects from getting tested to departure. Thanks Troy we had an amazing holiday.
Don't think i would use anyone else. Trust is a great belief in a buisness.
Shelley was great through the whole process and kept me up to date
Guy Foskin has pulled it out of the bag yet again. We have used DialAFlight for a number of years and always had the best service from him
Always an excellent service. Helen looked after us in a professional but friendly manner. She ensured that our holiday went smoothly.
Excellent in every way. Will definately use again. Well done.
Great customer service. We were kept informed and had a great time.
Great. Clear and concise service
The delays at Manchester airport put a dampener on the trip, but that was none of your causing
The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas is – like many hotels in the city – labyrinthine. It really is simply gigantic, with 3,026 rooms and suites and a 100,000-square-foot casino. There are myriad elevators and seemingly never-ending corridors and getting lost is not difficult.
A HOME AWAY FROM HOME
However, I discovered that it’s still remarkably homely. Our room, a ‘terrace studio’, was spacious and comfortable, with two plush queen-size beds
The hustle and bustle of Sin City was quickly forgotten and I felt quite reluctant to leave the room. The luxurious bathroom and its deep bathtub also had a magnetic effect.
Along with the terrace it’s here that I spent most of my time. It boasts a panoramic view of the Strip and overlooks the famous Bellagio fountains. Utterly mesmerising.
The hotel has plenty of other features that ensnared me – the 14 dining spots, for example.
These include award-winning Jaleo, the first Vegas location of David Chang's Momofuku restaurants, Masterchef judge Christina Tosi's milk bar and foodie fave Eggslut, which serves up wholesome egg sandwiches despite the rather risqué name.
We tried out two other restaurants in the city during our stay. Beauty & Essex is one of Manhattan's trendiest – and like the original, chef Chris Santos's first foray outside New York is entered through a pawn shop, leading to a gilded space with a 1920s Gatsby vibe.
The following evening, we headed to Estiatorio Milos. The Greek restaurant is known for serving the freshest seafood – and every morsel we tried was more-ish, yet seasoned simply with just olive oil, salt and pepper.
The restaurant's signature dish, the Milos Special, consists of delicious paper-thin zucchini and aubergine, fried and seasoned to crispy perfection. It's presented in a tower that is disassembled to reveal a serving of tzatziki.
WHERE TO DRINK
For drinks, the Chandelier is an Instagram-worthy bar spanning three stories and shrouded by a shimmering, beaded curtain of light.
We also called in at Rose.Rabbit. Lie, a modern supper club where we skipped the food and instead enjoyed cocktails and live entertainment.
Tucked away inside is The Study, which pays homage to the classic speakeasy and gives cocktail fanatics a more relaxing environment in which to unwind.
Then it was time to visit the hotel's exclusive nightclub - Marquee.
Entry is complimentary for hotel guests but it’s not for the faint of heart. You'll find some reprieve from the ear-splitting music and flashing lights outside by the pool.
The following day, we went back to Marquee to experience the Day Club - a raucous pool party that instantly reminded me of Spring Break shenanigans you'd see in a movie. If that's not your scene, don’t worry - it's not the only pool on offer.
BEYOND THE CASINO
The Boulevard Pool is the place to go to sunbathe in a social space while the Chelsea Pool offers more secluded havens.
And after a night and day at Marquee, I enjoyed a much-needed massage at the Sahra Spa. The signature treatment combines Thai, Swedish and Shiatsu techniques – and left me feeling invigorated.
Seeing the Strip from the air is definitely something to consider. We splashed out on Maverick Helicopters' most popular tour – the Wind Dancer. The flight took us on a thrilling ride over the city to one of the greatest natural wonders of the world – the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
I sat up front next to the friendly pilot, who pointed out incredible landmarks including Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam before we landed in the canyon. Once there we were treated to champagne and snacks.
On the journey back, we spotted incredible red rock formations and enjoyed an exhilarating flight over downtown Vegas and the Strip. Sadly, our thoroughly enjoyable weekend came to an end all too soon. We’d found so many ways to entertain ourselves at the Cosmo that that we didn’t even set foot in the Casino – so left with pockets not so light as they otherwise might have been!
